Lovely Birth Announcements


Since I started my maternity leave a bit early, I've had a lot of time to sit around and think about this new little addition to our family. (At least when I'm not chasing Violet around that is) I've been checking out birth announcements on Pinterest (seriously what did we do before Pinterest?!) and am trying to decide what I'd like to do for our new little girl. Here are a few of my favorites:

This lovely birth announcement by Brooke Schwab is one of my all-time favorites. Simple and sweet but lots of fun details:

I love that with this option the recipient gets an actual photo of the babe, but the important information is still there on the envelope:

Another version of the above, these pretty hand-painted notes would be perfect accompanying a photo:

This one doesn't include a photo, but the design is just so stunning that it almost doesn't matter:

And this one as well. I think this is letterpressed, but you could get a similar look with simple printing:

Which would you choose? I'm planning to design them myself (or have my sister help - it's nice having a graphic designer in the family :)) and print them online. I was really happy with Vistaprint when I had my business cards done, so I will probably use them again this time around. They're really affordable and are always running great deals on Vistaprint products. Every little bit helps, especially since I'll be going without a paycheck for so long! Things were so crazy after I had Violet, I never ended up sending out birth announcements and have always regretted it a bit. I hope I can get it together with this little one!

  1. Oh, those are all so lovely! Enjoy this time before the baby arrives (imminently!) So exciting. Paper Source also has some great ones too, especially if there are people you'd like to email instead of snail mail.

  2. My favourites are the first and the last one, but a picture is a MUST! I sent a lame B.A. email for my first; had a lot of fun making and mailing out one for my 2nd.

  3. Ohhh my goodness, all I want is to put together baby announcements in the glassine bag style above! I won't be having babes anytime soon, but maybe I'll do this when we get our new puppy in May... just kidding... kind of. ;)
